Sheikh Maulana Nazim al-Hakkani – Aphorisms [3]

February 8, 2009  |  Thoughts

You pray, but in your heart is jealousy. You pray, and in your heart is love for this life. You pray, and in your heart is selfishness. Sixty bad qualities can be in your heart. If only one of them stays, it is sufficient to destroy your faith.

-Sheykh Maulana Nazim al-Hakkani



  1. Assalamualaykum brother Yursil, i would first like to thank you for the excellent work you are doin for the Naksibendi Hakkani tariqa and may Allah bless you and our sheikh Mawlana Nazim Haqqani and his deputy Sheikh Abdul Kerim. As a mureed living in England it is difficult to ask for advice and i just wanted to know if you could tell me how the silent (hafi) zikr is practiced in our tariqa as i have not come across any reliable source that tells us how to do it correctly. Thank you in advance

  2. BismillahirRahmanirRahim
    Salamu’alaykum Obeid,

    You can start with the wird here:

    As far as beyond that, the specific silent zikr you might be referring to is generally performed as a group and is led by the Shaykhs or his khalifas.
